Description

Enhancing Motivation for Change in Substance Abuse Treatmentidentifies motivation for change as a key component in addressing substance abuse.The course also describes different motivational interventions that can be used at all stages of the change process, from precontemplation and preparation to action and maintenance, and informs readers of the research, results, tools, and assessment instruments related to enhancing motivation. The primary purpose of this course is to link research to practice by providing clear applications of motivational approaches in clinical practice and treatment programs. This course also seeks to shift the conception of client motivation for change toward a view that empowers the treatment provider to elicit motivation. These approaches may be especially beneficial to particular populations (e.g., court- mandated offenders) with a low motivation for change.
This unit provides insight into the link between a client’s motivation to change and their predictability of change. Included are motivation-enhancing techniques to increase participation in treatment outcomes such as reductions in consumption, higher abstinence rates, better social adjustment and successful referrals to treatment. In addition, having a positive attitude toward change and being committed to change are associated with positive treatment outcomes.

Objective 1:
